Does that make me an indecent club runner then, Lit? I think you have to accept that you're a very, very good runner. Bob Glover characterises by times in his book. I think he's class you as Semi-Elite. I'm classed as Local Champion in some of my distances (when on form!). But maybe that's a bit more US'ey as I've only won one race (not counting Parkrun) ever.
Very impressive PB, Skinny . Amazing and bodes really well for London.
And another great winning run from Muddy!
So last week's XC was a bit of a struggle. Came off the back of 4 days off running due to feeling a bit crappy (ladies issues) and was my least favourite type of course (bastard hilly). So was miles back in the field compared to normal and yet still finished gasping and feeling my legs had been battered with a sledgehammer. Managed an 11 miler the following day that was much more like normal and a recovery run yesterday.
I've got Telford 10k on Sunday - not really sure how to approach it as training not been great due to various spells of illnesses and when I entered I put myself down for the faster start in the hope I'd get dragged round to a PB but now I'm not so sure I won't make a tit of myself. Oh well, it's only 10k .
